Boys (1996) Reviewed

BOYS (1996)
This unsatisfying Winona Ryder vehicle never seems to get to the good stuff. She plays a mysterious (and unconscious) woman found by Lucas Haas and his pals on their boys’ school campus. Rather than take her to a hospital they sneak her into their dorm, which may seem implausible though it’s totally what I would’ve done. Ryder wasn’t quite old enough to be taken very seriously in the “older woman”milf role. An unfortunate remake of the Zombie’s “She’s Not There,” figures into the soundtrack. These Boys sat around on the shelf for quite awhile before getting released which should tell you just about all you need to know. Watch for an early John C. Reilly perf as a cop.
